Darkwave is a generic term which refers to an 1980s movement that coincided with the popularity of new wave.

 Kammarheit CD - Reviews   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)

 Epsilon: Ambient Industrial, by Peter Werner   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Ambient industrial is, of course, a hybrid genre of ambient and industrial; the term industrial being used in the original experimental sense, rather than in the sense of industrial pop.
Ambient industrial makes use of Industrial principles such as use of anti-music, extra-musical elements and shock tactics, but wields these elements with more subtlety.
Ambient industrial is one of several directions that post-Industrial music took on after the breakup of Throbbing Gristle (the founders of Industrial as an art movement) in 1981 ended the Industrial period proper.

 Thomas Köner
While there are endless variations on the way to arrange the sonic vocabulary of dark ambient, there's only so many ways that you can describe the stuff.
Where Lustmord's older stuff had a dark, slightly demonic edge to it that suggested something nasty lurking just out of hearing, Köner's Teimo is cold, bleak, lifeless and inhospitable.
It seems as good an introduction to dark ambient as any - Köner is, after all, one of the major names in the genre, and these two albums are almost definitively dark ambient.
